[Solved] Strange vailable memory indication
Have a strange memory on my pfsense box running 2.1.5 RELEASE that the dashboard says that 92% of 104 GByte HDD
are in use ( see attachment )
I have read other post regarding this and tried the command```
du -d 1 / | sort -n -r
9998261 / 2831344 /var 921336 /usr 86724 /kernels 33988 /cf 28852 /client-export 28140 /boot 18316 /etc 14372 /lib 5888 /sbin 5356 /home 3344 /tmp 1716 /bin 452 /libexec 184 /root 68 /dist 40 /conf.default 5 /dev 4 /tank 4 /scripts 4 /rescue 4 /proc 4 /mnt 4 /media 4 /.snap This seems to be OK but why is the indication that different or do I have a serious HDD problem ? What could I do to troubleshoot this ? Thx in advance thafener
The attachment was missing. What is the exact error?
Check the disk usage as mentioned here also:
I have read this thread and sorry for the missing attachment, it is on now. Problem is that there
is a big difference in the available free space shown in the dashboard and in the commandline output
I have posted.
That is what the document I linked explains how to find. The space must be in use somewhere. Check "df -hi" and "du -h" (don't sort the output)
It's also possible that the filesystem is corrupt or needs a check.
If you create an empty file /root/force_fsck and then reboot it will force a disk check during the boot process.
Happy New Year to you all
The out put of df -hi shows this
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on /dev/ad0s1a 104G 91G 4.8G 95% 38k 14M 0% / devfs 1.0k 1.0k 0B 100% 0 0 100% /dev /dev/md0 3.6M 72k 3.3M 2% 39 727 5% /var/run /dev/md10 488M 6.0k 449M 0% 3 64k 0% /var/tmp/havpRAM devfs 1.0k 1.0k 0B 100% 0 0 100% /var/dhcpd/dev
The output of the second command shows nothing extraordinary big, output is too big
to post here unfortunately.
So I will do the Filesystem Check during one of the next nights an in case this
does not work I am going to buy a new HDD.
By the way I am using a Intel SSD, may this be a Issue ?
Thank you very much for your help and the useful hint, the Filesystem Check did the trick.
The filesystem shows 90% free again.
